    They have a polished professional staff here that communicates well with me about my sons progress. The learning is hands on and they offer a wide variety of different academic courses.

    SACA provides students with an approach and environment that is different from that of a traditional high school. My daughter received individualized instruction and encouragement from her instructors whose goals included helping her graduate.

    Due to SACA's self-paced system students receive individual attention and can succeed at their own pace. The teachers are not only helpful but genuinely want to see the students do well and go on to bigger and better things. I am graduating from SACA in June and I am going to be attending the Honors College at the University of Arizona. My passion for learning comes from the environment that Southern Arizona Community Academy has provided me with. If you take full advantage of their resources you can enroll at Pima Community College for free and receive high school and college credit. You can also become Microsoft Certified. If you are a student who wants to finish classes quicker this school is perfect for you. The motivated and the dedicated do extremely well here. Similarly if you are struggling in a main-stream high school environment SACA may be the perfect alternative.

    My daughter transferred here from another high school. She is self motivated and wanted to be in a small school with teachers that were accessible. She also wanted to feel safe. SACA has enabled her to take honors classes proceed at her own pace have access to teachers when she needed them and excel.

    A Professional staff who have provided my Granddaughter indvidual help and excellent guidance. They have provided her motivation to work to her potential. They reinforced the fact she need to pepare for and attend college. The fact there is no social/peer pressures is another positive. I highly recommend this school for youth who do well with independent learning.
